passed to strengthen the laws we have in our country. laura and i have worked real hard this past year and a half or so in oklahoma. we were trying to get a new law passed, one that would help our schools to make sure this never happens again to another baby or family. it's really ironic in the one-year anniversary of the day we. ty, may 17, oklahoma lawmakers decided they were going to kill our law. one of them from coast to win on the channels and said we don't need to laws against saturday. all we have to do is learn how to follow the golden rule, treat others the way we want to be treated. you're shaking your head? you see something wrong with that? yes, sir, me, too. if lawmakers said we don't need no solace. we just need to learn how to follow the golden rule? i don't know about you, but i'm thinking if we don't need new laws, why do we even if lawmakers? for a misguided soul didn't have a clue, did she? i know buys aren't going to stop bullying. without bias against almost everything. doesn't stop them from happening, does it? we have to give the schools and parents the backing

a severe mental illness. i was able to go to law school and establish it for myself. in terms of having other views on the panel, it could leave -- lead to an increase in stigma. my other point is that the way that we're looking at mental health services from the perspective of inpatient hospitalization, they have been looking at community-based care. host: let's let the congressman reply. guest: some people in america believe in such things as the pure services -- pierre services. they work very well with alcohol and -- peer services. they were very hat -- very well with alcohol and drug abuse. severe violence, there is high risk. the other reason that we're not having someone with severe mental illness on a panel, that is not what this panel is about. this is about telling congress people what it is like for families. that is important. i want members of congress the year from parents. since we are talking about severe mental illness that relates to violence, i will not bring someone out of prison to talk about what they kill people. we are not going to do that. that is a dangerous si

these automatic budget cuts to become law. when the president signed the sequester order a number of agencies across government were notified how much they have to cut. it may be months, if ever, that the public feels the direct impact of these cuts. but in a sign of political exhaustion, both the president and the speaker are signaling they won't do battle over funding government the rest of the year, taking the prospect of the government shutdown at the end of this month off the table. there's still optimism both parties can forge some grand bargain on taxes, spending and entitlements much later this year. >> i think we need to do a big agreement for the country. >> bipartisan compromise on revenue, raising tax with serious entitlement reform. >> reporter: meanwhile as republicans use the sequester debate as a rallying cry to move on from 2012, it's clear mitt and ann romney are still grab e grappling with their loss. >> obviously it was a winning campaign. it worked. >> do you think it was fair? >> no. >> the president had the power of incumbency. obamacare was very attractive, particular
